Lovely layout. Spacious. Lovely kitchen and lighting. But was empty the whole time we were there! We arrived at 18:15 and left at 19:45 when the first reservation arrived. The music was a bit irritating. We were asked what we would like to drink. Our dining companion asked for a sparkling water and the waitress promptly left and brought everyone a sparkling water which I don't drink anyway. The Pork and Leek sausages were well cooked and enjoyable. The mash was the highlight-perfect Creamy consistency but the petit petit slightly dried out. The veal was cooked really well and superbly tender. A good choice. All went for the chocolate brownie and ice cream. It was a good serving a superb flavourful scoop of vanilla ice cream. The brownie had a warm chocolate sauce which was not too strong which made it thoroughly enjoyable. There is a good space to hang coats etc away from the dining area and the toilets and wash areas are very clean and spacious. A good venue if you want to be far from the madding crowd and away from loud families. Worth a second visit.

Union Café is situated in Marylebone Lane very close to the fashionable shops in Marylebone High Street and within walking distance of Bond street tube station. (See Map)
The restaurant is a modern, lively and bright Californian-style restaurant with large windows and an open-plan kitchen so you can watch the chefs at work. The stripped wooden floor, tables and chairs give a smart but casual feel. Buzzy at lunchtime and more laid-back in the evening.
The Food is interesting and delicious - contemporary British with a Mediterranean slant, including roquefort, pear, endive and walnut salad, saffron risotto, homemade crab cakes and roast rack of lamb.
There is an interesting wine list with plenty of old and new world choices at incredibly reasonable prices. The wines start at £15.00 per bottle for Macon Blanc Villages and £15.00 per bottle for Cotes du Rhone.
Parties – We can accommodate parties in the Union Café of up to 20 people.
